This makes them ideal for use in NAS systems and RAID setups. With 256 MB cache, this WD Red Plus disk offers more than enough reserves for this purpose. The high-performance NAS hard drive with high transfer rates offers a storage capacity of 12 TB and a modern SATA 6G connection.

The features of the Western Digital Red Plus 12 TB at a glance:
3.5 inch hard drive from the WD Red Plus series
12 TB capacity / 256 MB cache / 7,200 rpm
Filled with helium and designed for continuous operation
3D Active Balance Plus technology / 1,000,000 hours of MTBF
Fast data transfer at 196 MB / s via SATA 6G
Energy-saving: only 6.3 watts in operation / 2.9 watts in idle
High compatibility and easy system integration thanks to NASware 3.0

The features of the Western Digital Red Plus 12 TB in detail
The Western Digital Red Plus 12 TB filled with helium and hermetically sealed. Helium is only one seventh the density of air, so replacing air with helium in a hard drive will greatly reduce the air turbulence caused by the spinning disks. This also minimizes power consumption and temperatures, which enables Western Digital to accommodate more platters in a traditional 3.5-inch form factor.

This design offers a 50 percent increase in capacity while still saving up to 23% energy. The hard drive consumes only 6.3 watts in operation and runs about four to five degrees below the temperature of standard hard drives. With 2.9 watts in idle and 0.6 in standby mode, the remaining power consumption values of the Western Digital Red Plus 12 TB are also very low, which not only benefits the NAS system, but also your wallet.
Attention: Please note that this hard drive model is slightly higher at 26.1 mm than is the case with most other 3.5-inch HDDs. Therefore, if necessary, check whether the hard disk can fit into your PC, your NAS or your external hard disk enclosure.

At 196 MB / s, the limit of the SATA interface is anything but exhausted, but the SATA 6G installed here not only offers the advantage of a higher bandwidth. Because the protocol was also significantly refined, for example to increase energy efficiency and optimize the transmission of multiple simultaneous data streams with high bandwidth.

Optimized for NAS
NAS is an impressive interface with which it is very easy to exchange data quickly and wirelessly between different devices. The Western Digital Red Plus hard drives are equipped with NASware 3.0. This increases system compatibility and allows seamless integration into existing network infrastructures.

3D Active Balance Plus in the WD Red Plus is an advanced technology for mass balancing on two levels. It improves the overall performance and reliability of the drive. Hard drives without proper balancing can cause excessive vibration and noise in a multi-drive system, reduce the life of the hard drive, and over time, degrade performance. That is why Western Digital advertises its 12 TB hard drive with an enormous mean life (MTBF) of 1,000,000 hours.

Since some hard drive manufacturers grant no or only a limited manufacturer's guarantee for OEM goods, we assume the original manufacturer's guarantee of identical non-OEM versions for end customers in full if an OEM hard drive is purchased from any manufacturer. Depending on the model, we extend the period of the legally prescribed liability for material defects (warranty) accordingly to, for example, 3 or 5 years from the date of purchase. This ensures that Caseking customers do not suffer any disadvantage when it comes to OEM goods.
